Note, it is, by tradition, strictly a Friday & Saturday event; first Friday of August, rain, shine, hail or hurricane. If you go on Sunday all you will find these days are empty tents. Up until 6 – 7 years ago the huge book tent would still have all the unsold books in it and you were encouraged to take as many away — for free. Now they have exchange students from abroad, staying at Brewster over the Summer, come and clear the books away Saturday night.
Unless it is beyond torrential rains we will be there late on Saturday, as we always are — even in heavy downpours.
Just in case anybody was wondering or was coming just for a balloon ride. Just a heads up. I got an e-mail about the weather-related cancellation on Friday evening. The Open House, of course, is still on, rain or shine.
